Since the rise of pelvic physiotherapy (± 1985), the Group Practice Minerva has become familiar with this specialisation.
Our practice has three registered pelvic physiotherapists: Ingrid Hofsteede, Loes Dehne and Tessa Luijckx; they treat men and women of all ages and specialize in the treatment of tense pelvic floors.
We mainly work with specialists (urologists, gynaecologists, gastroenterologists and sexologists) from the Amsterdam hospitals. In addition, we have contacts with other Academic hospitals throughout the Netherlands. We also treat people who are referred by general practitioners and social workers from Amsterdam and surroundings. We work closely with a few haptotherapists.
